Lion class  - Year 1 - Mrs Cater/Mrs Laurence


Lion Class have loved learning about our ‘Kings and Queens’ topic this term! We started off by looking at Queen Elizabeth II and the role she plays as Queen. We spoke about her family and created a timeline of her life.

After this, we researched other Monarchs from different time periods, in particular Queen Elizabeth I, the Tudor family and how different times were back then.

More recently, we have learnt about Queen Victoria and how life was like in the Victorian times.    The children were surprised at some of the toys Victorian children had and what school was like for them.

We have been busy making crowns and royal gardens, creating royal portraits and self-portraits in the style of different artists and practising ball skills for our Commonwealth games, which will be held next half term.

In ICT we have spoken about how to stay safe when online and why we use digital devices.

PSHE lessons have focused on discussions about how we are similar and different to one another and who our special people are.

Addition and subtraction, place value and 2d and 3d shapes have been our focus in Maths lessons and the children have been using different apparatus to help them to work out number sentences.

Well done for a great term!
